    HS is one of those things/companies that sell because of who they are IMO. I am certainly not saying it is not a nice vise, or worth the money, but "the kid" probably won't like the price, or be able...

    Well if they were built "by hand" (not all cnc work, including shoes), it is much easier to align punches having access to the bolts from the top of the die set vs trying to align a punch and then...

    Along with this ^ , you will need an endmill with a coating designed for hard milling. You could do some milling with a 'regular' uncoated (or a not hard specific coating) but it will not last long.
